Jonathan Hill joined the Theology and Religion department as Lecturer in Philosophy of Religion in 2013. He was previously a researcher at the University of Oxford, after completing his PhD in Philosophy at the National University of Singapore.

His research in philosophy of religion and philosophical theology has focused mainly on the doctrine of incarnation. He co-edited The metaphysics of the incarnation (together with Anna Marmodoro of Oxford University), published by OUP in 2011.

He also has a major research interest in early modern philosophy, particularly the philosophy of Leibniz and the interactions between Cartesian and sceptical philosophers, especially on the subject of belief (religious and otherwise).

Jonathan is also interested in the history of doctrine, especially in the early church and the Middle Ages. He is the author of Dictionary of theologians: to 1308 (Cambridge: Lutterworth 2010), and an introduction to the history of the early church, The crucible of Christianity (Oxford: Lion 2010, re-issued as Christianity: the first 400 years in 2013).
